Improving Performance Together
Mammography Positioning Improvement Collaborative
Suboptimal mammography positioning is the primary factor leading to technically inadequate mammograms. Poor mammogram quality contributes to undetected breast cancer. In a single-institution study only 67% of images met the positioning criteria set forth by the American College of Radiology. (Pal et al., AJR 2018).
Participants will be encouraged to learn and share ways to create a standardized system for mammography positioning, evaluation and ongoing monitoring, to deliver images that more consistently meet the ACR positioning criteria.
